When FBI agent Richard Clark becomes involved in hunting down the leader of a terrorist group calling itself ARC—Anarchists for Real Change—he finds himself opening old wounds that threaten to push him over the edge. Our Darker Angel begins with FBI Agent Rick Clark's investigation into a series of murders claimed to have been committed by a group of anarchists. Fighting terrorism has become a personal issue with Clark. Two years before, his daughter perished in a terrorist bombing when a group calling itself EMMA discharged a C2 explosive at a political rally.
The new murders bear a striking resemblance to the former killings by EMMA, as they too only target the corrupt and powerful. There is one notable difference, though. ARC seems to rely exclusively on the Internet to hire lowlife assassins desperate to make an easy buck.
While undertaking his investigation of ARC, Clark relies on the expertise, keen intuition, and psychological insights of Dr. Marty Robin, a forensics psychologist. Together, they research the backgrounds of the victims, while Marty attempts to construct profiles of the assassins and figure out the personal history of the mysterious Ali Cohen, a beautiful young woman deeply troubled by tragic events in her past, which are somehow intimately connected to the terrorist attacks.
As Agent Clark delves deeper into the investigation of ARC, he’s dragged down by personal ghosts and yet another tragedy—again, of someone very close to him. Barely able to struggle to the surface and get his head above water, Marty becomes his savior. She and his faithful dog Thomas manage to rescue him from his darkest hours and pull him safely to shore.
This novel offers so much more than your typical crime thriller or political thriller. Although terrorism and political themes are an integral part of the overall plot, the psychological elements in this novel stand out as the real tour de force. They offer an insightful thesis on terrorism and the role desperate characters and situations play in its formation.
